Peoples Mass Book

This book is in very good condition. There is some wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the cover boards. There is some fraying on the cover boards. The pages are white, crisp, and clear of any markings. "This section of the book gives the user all the material which he needs to participate fully in the celebration of the Eucharistic Liturgy. The proper chants are printed in full so that they can be chanted or recited. The community should listen to the official proclamation of the message by the celebrant or reader and the prayers of the priest. A helpful but short commentary on the theme is often arbitrary since many celebrations just do not have a central idea. Whereas some of the readings were deliberately combined to develop a theme, other arrangements of Epistles and Gospels have been so shuffled through the centuries that there is little natural relationship between them. The commentary given here is a possible way of interpreting the readings around one point of meditation and instruction...." - Introduction To The Proper Section from Peoples Mass Book

There is no bumping or fraying on the cover boards. The pages are clear of any markings. The pages are white, clear of any markings and crisp. "Since the promulgation of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council, all of us have experienced the first steps toward a renewal of the liturgy of the Church. We see clearly now that this liturgical renewal cannot be a matter of texts and rubrics only; the heart of this renewal is prayer. And the key to renewing the prayer of the Sunday assembly is rekindling a love for and practice of prayer in the hearts of those who make up the Church. Prayer must happen in the 'little churches' - the households, the families - if the Sunday assembly is to become a community of prayer. The Council taught that the liturgy 'is the primary and indispensable source from which the faithful are to derive the true Christian spirit' (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, 14) How can that spirit come to fill and give shape to our lives unless it is there in the prayers of individuals and families?..." - Foreword from Catholic Household Blessings And Prayers

The period in view is nearly that which has been named the Patristic. It has also been denominated, but not perhaps very happily, the period of Christianity under its Antique and Classical form.... - Author's Preface from The Ancient Catholic Church

Liturgy And Society

By A. G. Herbert

The previous owners have written, and dated the inside cover boards, and affixed an ownership stamp. The pages are yellowing and tanning, but the pages are clear of any markings. "This book is an essay on the Church and her message, particularly as embodied in the actual order of the Church and her liturgy, in relation to the problem of belief and a true social life in the confused world of today. It is addressed not only to those who are Christians, but also to those many others who look in from time to time through the church door, and wonder whether some day they will come in. That the Church, being such as she is, should inspire a certain repulsion is intelligible enough. But she also exercises an attraction; and here I feel sure that it is not least the sacred actions and words of Christian worship that make to very many a deep appeal, and one that is not only or even chiefly aesthetic: that even when sermons are tiresome and hymns banal, the drama of the eucharistic rite and the words of the Prayer Book speak to them of a real relation of man to the Eternal, and inspire a hope that amid the disintegration of modern life, the confusion of belief, and the falling in ruins of the towers of Babel that human idealism tries to build, they may yet come to find that this sacred symbolism is an expression of reality, of the things which cannot be shaken, of the City which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God...." - Preface from Liturgy And Society

They have been given from on high precisely to help the spiritual progress of those who study them in a spirit of piety. For, as the Vatican Council teaches, 'reason illumined by faith, if it seeks earnestly, piously and wisely, does attain, under God, to a certain and most helpful knowledge of mysteries...'"...." - Foreword from Liturgical Piety

"This volume does not form part of the series entitled 'The form of the Servant', although I hope that it may be regarded as further illustrating the principles of biblical interpretation there adopted. In the course of the past century there has been amongst Anglicans a periodic discussion of matters connected with baptism and confirmation. During the second half of this period, however, a number of new factors have been contributing to the development of a fresh situation. Amongst these are the growing recognition that both Jewish and more ancient backgrounds are all-important and secondly the recovery of early liturgical texts amongst which The Apostolic Tradition of Hippolytus stands out. My own interest was first aroused by F. Gavin's small, but learned, book on The Jewish antecedents of The Christian Sacraments (1928), which showed a close continuity between Jewish and Christian forms of initiation and which, in that respect, is still highly relevant. For example, it makes clear the strongly Jewish background of the Hippolytan rites, and even a substantial identity of rubrics....." - Foreword from Confirmation: It's Place In The Baptismal Mystery

It claims as its rightful inheritance all that is truly ecumenical in the Church of every age and every land. Not the least part of its legacy is the liturgy, which has moved from beginnings in Asia Minor to the western end of the Mediterranean, to Northern Europe and to the Western Hemisphere. in this transition it has crossed the barriers of language from Greek to Latin to German to English. The Lutheran churches which have prepared the Common Liturgy are located in the New World and worship in the English language...." - Preface to the Liturgy from Service Book And Hymnal

Some of these from among the Pre-Reformation rites have not been available in a form adapted for actual use. Since use at St. Luke's, some have been used in other situations. Almost all could be said to come within the bounds prescribed by "An Order for Celebrating the Holy Eucharist" of Services for Trial Use if the Eucharistic Prayer is adapted to the "D" form of that Order...." - Seven Pre-Reformation Eucharistic Liturgies
